2024 Summer Learning Clubs for Students Entering Grades 3-5

Tue, June 25 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Summer Learning Clubs integrate math, literacy, and STEAM activities into a thematic approach for an extended period. Each week, this complete immersive experience will cover a different topic over two days. Tuesdays center around a blend of inquiry, design, research, writing, and the arts. The Wednesday class builds on the deep work from Tuesday, and focuses on math, science and revision, testing and technology, with students creating a physical representation of their learning.

Using a Project Based Learning model, students will work together to solve challenging problems that are authentic, curriculum-based, and interdisciplinary. Following this format, learners will decide how to approach a problem and what activities to pursue in their unique approaches. They gather information from various sources and plan, synthesize, analyze, and derive knowledge from it. Their learning is inherently valuable because it connects to something real and organic and promotes essential skills such as collaboration, revision, and reflection. In a culminating activity, students will demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge and communicate this with others. Throughout this process, the teacher's role is to guide and advise rather than direct and manage the student's work.

There will be a short movement and snack break.
